FY2020 Planning and Implementation Guide for Juvenile Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program
This guide from The Council of State Governments Justice Center is intended to support recipients of Juvenile Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program grants administered by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The guide is not intended to serve as a step-by-step blueprint, but rather to foster discussion on best practices, identify considerations for your collaborative effort, and help you work through key decisions and implementation challenges.
The planning and implementation guide is tailored to support grantees in developing and refining their justice and mental health initiatives to improve responses and outcomes for youth with mental illnesses and co-occurring substance use disorders who come into contact with the juvenile justice system.
